Ubuntu's system update application has received a refreshed look in Ubuntu 13.04. The new changes, which we wrote about earlier this week, is aimed at making the information displayed to users easier to digest.
Ubuntu's Design Team are reaching out to the community to help design a new icon for Ubuntu's Software Updater application. The icons in Ubuntu 12.10 and 13.04 are described by the design team's Matthew Paul Thomas as creating 'a usability problem'.
A redesigned version of Ubuntu's 'Software Updater' application is likely to arrive in Ubuntu 13.04 before April. Writing about the UI tweaks on his blog, developer Michael Terry says that a patch containing the changes has been 'proposed'.
For Ubuntu 12.10 the 'Update Manager' tool has been retitled to 'Software Updater' - a subtle retitling that affirms the applications role and purpose on the desktop.
